The Ratner Lab is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on human T-cell leukemia virus and adult T cell leukemia lymphoma (HTLV). Projects involved molecular and cellular biology and virology, immunology, informatics research including lab bench and biosafety laboratory tissue culture, using state-of-art techniques including humanized mice, single cell RNAseq, CRISPR screens, CUT&RUN sequencing. The projects focus on epigenetic regulation of HTLV, T-cell receptor signaling, viral and cellular protein interactions studies, and functional analyses. We incorporate discoveries into clinical trials, and use human samples as well for these studies.
